The League Cup semifinal second leg between Manchester City and Burton Albion carries a hilarity amongst any bid for relevance.

Can the League One outfit overcome a 9-goal deficit against one of the best clubs in the world?

Nope, but Burton Albion will still take the pitch against City at Pirelli Stadium on Wednesday.

“We are sold out and we are just going to enjoy it,” said Burton boss Nigel Clough. “Our supporters will get to see some of the best players not just in the country but in the world. They might never get to see a game like this here again.”

Burton would need to win by 10 goals in order to advance, and even a hardly possible 9-0 win would force extra time.

Man City will be playing a significant amount of academy players.
